Severe weather alerts protect against damages

Insurance companies optimize their combined ratio. With UBIMET’s early severe weather alerts, insurance companies can help their customers prevent damages or at least keep them to the absolute minimum.

Severe weather alerts as a service

Severe weather alerts are sent out via SMS, e-mail or push notification between 48 hours to 15 minutes prior to the arrival of a severe weather event. The alerts detail significant weather events such as thunderstorms, gales, heavy rain, freezing rain or snow. The alerts also cover hurricanes and tropical cyclones in the USA and Australia.

Insurance customers receive individual, early and reliable alerts, giving them the opportunity to take precautionary measures in a timely manner.

How do insurance companies benefit from the severe weather alerts?

The severe weather alerts service benefits insurance companies and insurance customers alike:

Recipients of the alert have the opportunity to immediately implement safety measures. Surveys show that customers close their windows, secure garden furniture and park vehicles in the garage, among other actions. This helps to minimize damages or, ideally, avoid them entirely.

Your company is shown as the sender of the severe weather alert. This additional contact is positively perceived by the insured and strengthens customer loyalty. In addition, insurance companies providing this service are perceived by their customers as innovative and customer-oriented. Moreover, this service contributes to keeping customer data current.

Precise alerts and highly developed transmission

The highest level of reliability regarding severe weather alerts is not only ensured by a progressive, multi-step process, but also by means of location-specific weather analysis and alerts generated with modern, high end technology.
